Chapter 4 in 2017 Global Hunger Index: The inequalities of hunger, 2017, pp 30-31 from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

Abstract: Although enough food is produced globally to feed the world, hunger persists—largely the product of various and severe inequalities. Yet neither hunger nor inequality is inevitable; both are rooted in uneven power relations that often are perpetuated and exacerbated by laws, policies, attitudes, and practices.
